This is not a one-size-fits-all approach to addiction treatment. Each patient has different needs and challenges when it comes to addiction and mental health, so our treatment plans are customized and tailored to meet those individual needs. When a person suffers from addiction, it impacts their biological, psychological, social and spiritual makeup A few things that need to be taken into account when devising a treatment plan are:

How long they have used for

How much they use 

Mental health issues

Current physical health issues 

How many times, if any, they have tried to get sober before 

At JourneyPure Emerald Coast, our team of professionals understand this and makes a treatment plan that is unique to each patient through evidence-based practices.

Our Programs

Levels of Treatment

Treating addiction and remaining sober takes a lifetime of commitment on the part of the addict and includes major lifestyle adjustments and behavioral adaptations.

  • Detox
  • Residential Treatment
  • Partial Hospitalization
  • Intensive Outpatient
  • Outpatient
  • Aftercare

Therapies Incorporated

Factors That Contribute to Addiction

There are people that can drink alcohol casually and never become an alcoholic. There are others who cannot. There are many factors that contribute to the likelihood someone will develop an addiction problem. Genetics account for half the probability someone will develop an addiction. However, this doesn’t mean that because a family member has an addiction you will too. Other factors are at play. Environmental factors also play a significant role. An unstable home-life, history of trauma or existence of co-occurring psychiatric disorders can lead someone into substance abuse. For many, relying on substances becomes a misplaced way of coping with significant emotional trauma. Statistics released in the National Survey of Adolescents, show that teens who had experienced physical or sexual abuse/assault were three times more likely to report past or current substance abuse and more than 70 percent of the adolescents receiving treatment for substance abuse had a history of trauma. Studies also indicate that as many as 59 percent of young people with PTSD later develop substance abuse problems.

Drug Rehab In Panama city beach fl: What to Expect

Here is an overview of what you can expect from the moment you call:


Our friendly and helpful admissions coordinators will be on-hand to help answer any questions you have about treatment at JourneyPure Emerald Coast. Each patient will undergo a clinical assessment to help determine the best treatment plan and recovery path for them. They are happy to provide a free health benefits check and help you understand exactly what your insurance covers and what out-of-pocket expenses are likely. We take most insurances, including Florida Blue Cross Blue Shield, Beacon Health Options, Humana and more.

Depending on a number of factors, the clinical assessment will help determine the level of care that best suits your needs. We offer residential addiction treatment as well as Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). PHP and IOP are offered as either an individual’s primary care or a step-down, continuing care option for those who have been in residential treatment and need additional clinical support. PHP and IOP programming are offered throughout the week and allow patients to balance home and work life while receiving the quality treatment they need for long-term recovery.

Dual Diagnosis and Holistic Care

We take a holistic approach to addiction treatment, ensuring that each patient is cared for physically, emotionally and spiritually throughout their stay. We believe healing from the wounds of addiction means not just addressing the addiction itself, but the underlying psychiatric reasons for the addiction. With dual diagnosis treatment, each patient will be assigned a primary care physician and a psychiatric team of professionals who work in tandem to develop the best course of treatment.

We also believe that a strong mind and body is better suited for long-term recovery; therefore sleep, nutrition and exercise – the three pillars of health – are critical pieces to the treatment plan. Mindfulness and meditation exercises help clear the mind, lower stress, increase clarity and instill a sense of calm in our patients. We also incorporate experiential therapies like equine, outdoor adventure and songwriting into our program. These non-traditional therapies are a great way to tap into some buried feelings and emotions that correlate with the addiction. They also promote team-building and allow patients to slowly regain trust in others. They also challenge the body and mind with new physical activities, which improves self-confidence and self-esteem.

Behavioral addiction Therapies

We utilize the best in evidence-based addiction treatment to ensure our patients are receiving the latest and most successful methods available. Behavioral therapies are incorporated into weekly individual and group settings to help patients modify destructive behaviors associated with drug or alcohol abuse and develop the coping mechanisms needed to remain abstinent post-treatment. Some of these therapies include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

Family Programming

Addiction doesn’t just affect the addict, but everyone around them. Family members are especially impacted and need a supportive community during this difficult time. Through a day of programming every other weekend, family members take part in educational groups and therapeutic activities. Our goal is to educate about the disease of addiction to help people understand the “why” behind the addiction and how it leads to destructive behavior. and to provide the tools for healthy communication. There are strong feelings and emotions on both sides for the patient and family members, which can lead to tension, fighting, or even separation. With the proper communication tools, both can learn to express their truest feelings in a more constructive way.

Following Your Journey Through Aftercare

A major problem in the addiction treatment industry has been the lack of follow-up care for patients after they leave treatment. Many who have struggled with addiction agree that the most difficult stretch of recovery for them happens within the first year of leaving treatment. Because addiction is a chronic disease characterized by relapse, it is crucial to incorporate aftercare, or continuing care plan, into the overall scope of treatment. JourneyPure Emerald Coast promises each patient one year of coaching services at no additional charge. With weekly check-ins from a recovery coach, and free access to JourneyPure Coaching™, an app designed to track your personal recovery goals, you’ll have additional support throughout your recovery journey.

Some patients may realize after residential or PHP treatment that they need additional clinical care, continued therapy and the supportive community that comes with a step-down program. Our staff will help in the transition to a lower level of care that meets your needs. Long-lasting recovery for each patient is our number one goal, so we will do everything we can to ensure you receive any additional services that will aid in your recovery.
